Ardent Music and Texas-based band Greyhounds announce a three-album deal, with the first release scheduled for March 2014. As Greyhounds, guitarist Andrew Trube and keyboardist Anthony Farrell have been making music and touring for 15 years, refining and developing a sound Trube calls “Hall and Oates meet ZZ Top. Anthony brings that LA thing and I bring the East Texas thing.”
Ardent Music, the independent record label based out of legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, expects to build on the fanbase the band has developed both on the road and as a staple of the Austin music scene. Label director Reed Turchi says, “We committed to three albums not only because we believe in these guys, not only because they’re great musicians and songwriters, but because they’ve been incredibly prolific.” “We’re always writing,” Trube says. “We’ve got songs for eight albums.” The first ‘hounds out of the gate will be Accumulator, scheduled for a March 2014 release. “This is the re-introduction that never happened,” Trube says. The album will combine the cream-of-the-crop of tunes the band’s devoted followers pass along to the uninitiated with new, previously-unreleased tracks. An accumulation of the band’s past and present, with a nod to ZZ Top’s Eliminator, one of the most famous and commercially successful albums ever recorded at Ardent, Accumulator is also the first part of a sort of three-part wager well-known at the track.
